On Conflicts of interest #22, Kyle and Will cover the US rejection of Russia’s offer to extend the New START arms control treaty by one year with no preconditions. Washington deemed the proposal a “non-starter,” insisting the Russians give in to a number of demands before they will accept any offer.
